Publisher's Summary

The clock runs down to midnight…

Prince Finrael Ravenspar must defy his father’s will and cross back to the Kingdom of Rirea to save his beloved King Rohan De Clare from the undead. Finally together again, Finrael and Rohan desire only to be with one another and enjoy their newfound love, including attending the royal ball to celebrate the kingdom’s alliance against the Death Mage Marikoth.

But ancient prophecies and present enemies are working to destroy both Rirea and the Fae Empire. Will their combined power be able to stop the world from being turned into a graveyard?

This will be a five-book, high fantasy series with fated lovers, magnificent monsters, and powerful magic.

Note: This novel series has cliff-hangers! Every book will end on one. That’s my natural writing style. If you do not like cliff-hangers, wait until the whole series is published to listen. Thanks for the support!

X. Aratare writes gay paranormal romance with witches, vampires, magic, and mystery. Though some books may venture into dark territory, they will all have happy endings.

Best Retelling Ever!

I am so in love with this series. I have binge-listened to the whole thing and am now anxious for the final installment. The story is captivating, the characters are loveable and relatable, the world is intriguing, and the plot exciting! The narrator is so animated with each character and I lose myself in the conversations and story. Bravo! I can't wait to finish this series out with the fifth book!

Favorite retelling

I've been eagerly awaiting each next installment of this story, and it never disappoints. This is a wonderful fantasy series with interesting heroes, elves, villains, dragons - and even zombies! Somehow, it all works together. While it is certainly a fairy tale, by this installment it doesn't really refer to Cinderella anymore, not that that matters to me.

to long

it feels like a run along essay.

it feels stretch out for no particular reason. it like when a student has an essay that due next morning so they keep adding things just to meet the word count.

Great but long winded

Love the story and world building. Massive credit to the voice actors! Also I've come from the Spotify dragons reign crowd, looking for more from this author. Wished the story was truer to cinderella but loving how different and unique this is. It all could have be condensed into 3 books tbh. At one point I was like huh!??

Still a fan, and going to listen to book 5, just because I need to finish x

Looovveee

I am so invested in this story and I am waiting in suspense for the continuation of the storyline! I have never been looking so much forward to getting the next books of something. This is a must read (listen). I fully recommend if you like fantasy, romance, stubborn but loving characters and amazing world building! Truly love these books!
